Writer, Editor, Grammar Nazi
While my degrees are in business and psychology, my greatest strengths have always been writing and communication (both verbal and written). I have been published in e-zines, minor magazines, and local newspapers. In 1995, I won the gold medal in VICA Public Speaking for best Public Speaker in the Nation. In fact, I took home gold at the local, district, regional, and state levels, as well. Although I'm new to oDesk/Upwork, I am a writing, editing, and communications veteran of 20 years.
I currently work for tax resolution law firm. Hired originally as a Case Supervisor, I was promoted to Head of Client Services within two months. This was in large part due to my communication and problem-solving capabilities, as well as my ability to work well under pressure and time constraints.
I have worked in television on two popular shows: The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. I also have just under 2 years of legal transcription experience. Additionally, I have worked in customer service for Verizon, having received my training certification in 800-Inbound. Finally, I am computer savvy enough to handle most IT-related problems, so as to rarely - if ever - be slowed down on a project, should technical issues arise.
Give me a chance to prove to you why I am the best choice for your project. You won't be disappointed.
